Everything in life has a purpose. The pur- 
pose of food is to nourish the body. The 
purpose of rain is to renew the earth. The 
purpose of a yearbook is to preserve all the 
memories and events of an entire year be- 
tween its covers. While yearbooks are en- 
joyed when first published, their true 
value is seen years later. Yearbooks pro- 
vide people with a way to relive the past. 
They capture the highlights of school days 
and friendships which are frequently go- 
ing to be tested by time and distance. 
Last year, Catawba College failed to pro- 
duce a yearbook. Since there was not a 
yearbook to preserve the memories, in 
twenty years it will seem as if 1992-93 
never happened. This year things will be 
different. If this book serves its purpose, 
the Sayakini will be a memoir to be trea- 
sured. Last year, tradition was broken; this 
year the Sayakini's BACK AND BETTER 

Isn't college life stimulating? Fresh- 
man did not know what they were 
getting into by participating in the 
"Spear the Savor" portion of the 
"Games of the Catawba Olympiad."

Interaction with students was very im- 
portant to Dr. Wurster. His face was 
seen at most college functions, including 
this Homecoming football game. 

Dr. Stephen H. Wurster 

Thirteen years ago, in 1981, Catawba 
College was looking for someone to step 
in and fill the shoes as the 18th presi- 
dent. Dr. Stephen H. Wurster jumped 
right in and gladly accepted the posi- 
tion. Along with his wife Jean, and 
three children Gregory, Mark, and Eliz- 
abeth (now 20, 18, and 15 respectively), 
he moved to Catawba College. 

Dr. Wurster received his B.A. in his- 
tory from Ursinus College in Colle- 
geville, PA, where he graduated cum 
laude. He went to Drew University in 
Madison, NJ where he earned a Bache- 
lor of Divinity. At the University of 
Iowa in Iowa City, he received his M.A. 
and Ph.D., where he received the high 
honor of being a Woodrow Wilson Fel- 
lowship Scholar. Dr. Wurster later con- 
ducted some post-doctoral work at Har- 
vard. Before coming to Catawba, he 

taught history while attending graduate 
school at the University of Iowa. He also 
taught a honors history course at Ball 
State University in Indiana. Also at Ball 
State, Dr. Wurster served as Dean of 
Planning and Faculty Development and 
as the Assistant to the Provost. 

Along with his outstanding creden- 
tials, Dr. Wurster came to Catawba with 
some goals in mind. He wanted to see 
improvement in the student body, a rise 
in prospective students qualifications, 
and build and stabilize enrollment. 
Also, Dr. Wurster hoped to see the num- 
ber of faculty with doctrites increase, to 
retire the school's debt, and to build the 
endowment fund. Through his persis- 
tence and determination, Dr. Wurster 
accomplished these goals. 

Dr. Wurster was very fond of Cat- 
awba. He saw a great potential for 

growth and development. He enjoyed 
the sense of community between faculty 
and students that was present. Also, he 
admired the long tradition of mutual re- 
spect between Catawba and the Salis- 
bury community. 

On August 28, 1992, the Catawba Col- 
lege community lost a very special mem- 
ber. It lost a president, but it also lost a 
friend. Though time will continue to 
pass, Dr. Wurster will be remembered 
by others as an honest and dedicated 
man with a quick wit and high stan- 
dards both for himself and others. It is 
in his memory that the 1993-94 Saya- 
kini is dedicated.

By the time Friday rolls around, 
STUDENT LIFE is ready to kick in. 
Students are sick of academics and fill 
their weekends with lots of fun. Stu- 
dents may attend planned activities or 
just hang out with friends. But the fa- 
vorite activity is ... OOPS! We will 
talk about that later. Student life is

Saturday Night Live Comedian Jay 

Wigwam Productions had a very 
successful year in 1993-94. Their sea- 
son started at a rapid pace with five 
shows in only four weeks. It began 
with Barbara Bailey Hutchinson and 
1964: As The Beatles during the first 
week back to school. Next, Wigwam 
Productions hosted the "First An- 
nual Comedy Jam" starring Jay 
Mohr and Anthony Clark. "Denny 
Dent and His Two Fisted Art At- 
tack" dazzled the crowd with paint- 
ings of Billy Joel, Jim Morrison, 
Elvis Presley, and Jimi Hendrix. 
Dean "Hound Dog" Welch pur- 
chased both the Presley and Hendrix 
paintings. Parent's Weekend saw co- 

median Randy Levin and Rock and 
Roll Hall of Famer Roger McQuinn 
take the stage in Keppel Audito- 
rium. The rest of first semester in- 
cluded musician Rick Kelley, rock 
and roll lecturer Barry Drake, and 
everyone's favorite hypnotist Tom 
DeLuca. Second semester featured 
The Spencers Magic and Illusion, 
Craig Karges' psychic powers, and a 
cast of thousands. A special thanks 
to all the students who supported 
Wigwam Productions throughout 
the year.

Considered to be the most creative activity on 
campus, and possibly the most innovative, "The 
Talk Show" unites the many different groups of 
Catawba and strives to destruct sectionalism. 

The Talk Show, produced and performed en- 
tirely by the students, involves every detail of a 
full network talk show, including performance, 
technical sound and lighting, and audio-visual 

Founders Kevin, Leonard, Mike Wiley, and Jim 
tally agree that they created the Show in hopes of 
showing the student body that regardless of major 
or interest, all students can join together to share 
common interests, a variety of cultural back- 
grounds, and to simply just have fun. 

The Show includes guests from the faculty, stu- 
dent body, and community, live entertainment, 
and even commericals. 

Since its creation in January of 1993, "The Talk 
Show" has gathered a great following and is an ac- 
tivity which every student may be involved.

Parents Weekend. Some students look for- 
ward to the familiarity of home, others just 
look forward to the things they forgot in Au- 
gust, and still others dread seeing the reason 
why they left home. The students whose par- 
ents couldn't make it were "adopted for a day" 
by friend's families. From any perspective, it is 
an anticipated weekend. While some families 
arrived Friday night, most of the events hap- 
pened Saturday. Friday night's entertainment 
consisted of comedian Randy Levin and Roger 
McQuinn, a rock and roll legend. Parents be- 
gan Saturday by meeting the professors. The 
student center was divided into sections de- 
pending by departments. Families did a round 
robin meeting with all of their child's profes- 
sors. This is also a chance to know how their 
child has been doing. Following this, there was 
a very nice picnic for families. Lunch could be 
eaten under a tent or in the sun. The President 
of Catawba College, Fred Corriher, gave a 
speech welcoming families to Parents Week- 
end. However, the most exciting part of the 
day was sitting in the packed stands to watch 
our football team beat Mars Hill, 35-34. Proud 
parents and families enjoyed rooting on the 
team. The day is usually ended by a special 
dinner. Students look forward to this restau- 
rant dinner. All in all, everyone was pleased 
whether their parents were here or if they were 
"adopted for a day. " 

The mighty Indians ran out ready to 
crush Mars Hill.

The Service Of 

Sunday, October 3, 1993 marked a historic day at Catawba Col- 
lege. Surrounded by family, friends, colleagues and students, Jo- 
seph Frederick Corriher, Jr. was installed as the 19th President of 
Catawba College. In his Investiture Address, President Corriher 
commented, " We gather here this evening not to reflect on the life 
of a single individual but to celebrate the life of an institution." 
The Service of Investiture indeed paid tribute to the vitality of Cat- 
awba, but President Corriher was the main focus. During the ser- 
vice, he received the symbols of the Office of President which in- 
clude the Robe, Hood, Cap, Seal, and Mace. 

After the official installation, President Corriher delivered his 
Investiture Address. During his speech, he used a continued meta- 
phor comparing the "life of Catawba College to a rich tapestry, wo- 
ven over time from yarns of rich color (Catawba's faculty, staff, 
and students) on a loom which has been guided by many hands 
(the eighteen former presidents)." President Corriher expressed his 
hope that the four attributes of scholarship, character, culture, and 
service are "imbedded in our hearts and our minds, and reflected 
and made evident in our actions." 

Following his address, President Corriher and Dr. J. Michael 
Wilson, Provost and Dean of the College, conducted the Act of 
Convocation which officially started the 1993-94 school year. 

The Service of Investiture was indeed special. For the Catawba 
College community it marked the beginning of a new presidency. 
For President Corriher it was one of the most important events in 
his professional and personal life. This unique service will be re- 
membered by all who were in attendance as a historic day in the 
life of President Corriher and Catawba College.

A major influence on social activities at Catawba is dorm life. The campus has seven dorms 
for students to reside in. Three of the dorms, Hollifield, Barger-Zartman, and Stanback all 
house women students. Salisbury-Rowan, Pine Knot, and Abernethy are male dorms with 
Woodson Hall being the only co-ed dorm on campus. Strong friendships are formed among all 
people living in dorms which enables much interaction between a variety of students. While 
some freshmen might find the idea of living with a stranger to be frightening, many find the 
experience very fun and exciting. When asked how they felt about their experience, freshmen 
roommates Jen Ruiz and Karen Mealey said, "We were very lucky to have gotten along so well 
and it really made the transition to college much easier. " However, after living on campus for 
four years, the excitement quickly wears off. Senior Deanna Taylor stated that the reason she 
likes Hying in a dorm is the fact that she "likes the convenience of being so close to every- 
thing." All in all, the predominant attitude of students living on campus is a positive one be- 
cause students are so close to one another and partake in many social activities.

Many students at Catawba College partici-

study program allows a student to work on 
campus to earn extra money. This money 
can be given directly to the student in the 
form of a check or it can be applied to their 
cost of tuition. There are a variety of jobs in 
the work study program such as teacher as- 
sistants, library assistants, desk sitters in 
dorms, working in the book store, admis- 
sions, financial aid and more. When asked 
what she thought of the work study program

Homecoming '93 

Each year Catawba 
alumni come back to 
Cat-LJ to reunite with 
old friends and profes- 
sors. Most alumni can 
be found in the gym or 
tail-gating before the 
football game. The 
smiles and cheer that 
fill this special Home- 
coming weekend make 
it memorable to all who 
are present. 

Homecoming is not 
only fun for the alumni; 
it is fun for the present 
Catawba students. Cat- 
awba students spent the 
week before the Home- 
coming football game 
preparing for the festive 
weekend. Students were 
involved in activities 
such as a pudding fight, 
pizza eating contest, 
bonfire, and other fun 
activities. For those who 
participated in the ac- 
tivities, the spirit for the 
forth coming weekend 
was full of energy. 

The big day finally 
arrived. Saturday morn- 
ing came early to some 
students who spent time 
decorating the stadium 
for the football game. As 
the football game began, 
fans were entergetic and 
rooted for the Tribe. Al- 
though the game was 
lost to Wingate, the fans 
enjoyed themselves. 

The rest of the week- 
end was spent catching 
up with old buddies and 
friends. Homecoming is 
one weekend that all 
Catawba students, past 
and present, can enjoy.

Each day, these dedicated and enthusiastic in- 
dividuals stand before a group of students eager 
to teach about Athenian democracy, mitosis, and 
the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. They gear 
their lessons so the majority can easily learn and 
feel comfortable asking questions. These are the 
people who have the responsibility of training all 
of us for our future careers. They must help us 
understand the material as well as show us how 
to apply what we learn. 

The people behind the faculty are the staff 
members. These people are responsible for every- 
thing from recruiting students, giving out finan-

coordinating alumni affairs. Without their hard 
work, the Catawba College community would 
cease to exist. 

The faculty and staff are the backbone of what 
we know as Catawba College. They establish the

The students at Catawba College vary, not just 
in hair color or nationality but in their dreams 
and expectations. Students arrive with many dif- 
ferent ideas than when they leave. 

Freshmen begin college with thoughts of free- 
dom from their parents and weekend parties. 
They don't have to worry about breaking curfews 
because no one will be waiting up for them. Some

aren't serious enough to take on the responsibilty 
of studying and others dive right in. 

After a year of "experimenting" as freshmen, 
sophomores come back ready to declare their ma- 
jor. An advantage of having one year under your 
belt is you know which professors to take and 
which to avoid. 

Juniors hopefully have their majors declared 
and are taking the necessary courses. They are 
excited knowing that they are going to graduate 
in a couple of semesters. 

Most seniors try to get living accomodations 
off campus. Some are successful and others are 
not. Either way, they are all trying to get their 
Gened courses and courses for their major fin- 
ished. Many seniors stay in the area over the 
summer for jobs. 

Every student has their own dreams and expec- 
tations at Catawba College. Despite our differ- 
ences, we are all alike in that we want to succeed.

Varsity sports are very important to Cat- 
awba. In the South Athlantic Conference, 
the Indians are extremely competitive, and 
they demonstrate their winning ways 
against teams from Elon, Mars Hill, Pres- 
byterian, Lenoir-Rhyne, Carson, Newman, 
and Wingate. This year saw the beginning

of two new sports: Indians now compete in 
the hard-hitting sport of lacrosse and the 
exciting sport of swimming and diving. 
Also known as " hockey in the air," la- 
crosse is sure to be an action-packed In- 
dian sport. Women's swimming and div- 
ing, a winter sport, is sure to be full of new 
experiences.The Catawba Indians are very 
competitive in the SAC and our varsity 
sports will continue to be successful for 
many years to come. 





To run or not to run; that 
is the question for Jeff 

The Catawba Indians got off to a slow 
start this year, but once they got the ball 
rolling there was no stopping them. The 
Indians built up their confidence with a 
dominating 35-34 victory over Mars 
Hill. They went on to beat Newberry, 
Gardner-Webb, Elon, and West Virginia 

One of the best things about the foot- 
ball team is they work well as a unit. 
They pull together in tough times and 
that makes all the difference.

Many people at Cat- 
awba forget about one of 
the most enthusiastic 
teams here, the cheerlead- 
ers. Members of the squad 
spend each afternoon 
practicing and preparing 
for upcoming sporting 
events. The squad helped 
excite the fans and to- 
gether helped the football 
team come back and win 
several games. The cheer- 
leaders also support the 
basketball team. They use 
their enthusiasm to spread 
support for Cat-U 
throughout the entire 
gymnasium. If it weren't 
for the cheerleaders, much 
of the school spirit at Cat- 
awba would be non-exis- 
tent. We all need to take 
time out and thank all the 
cheerleaders both male 
and female for their hard 
work and dedication. 


Men's Soccer 


Although they did not do as well as in previous sea- 
ms, the 1993-94 Catawba men's soccer team was still a 
rev ailing factor in Division I men's soccer competition. 
Vith a record of 8-12-2, the men ended their season in 
hird place of the conference and placing second in the 
onference tournament at Lenoir-Rhyne College. Mem- 
ers of the team who made first team all-conference 
/ere Tim Santoro, David Upchurch, and Dan Cagle. 
lonnie Rennington, Dan Cagle, and Chad Price all 
lade first team in the tournament. Senior Chris Ranck 
/as awarded the Scholar Athlete award showing that 
ard work prevails in academics as well as athletics, 
ven though the team will be losing a few senior key 
layers, the combined talents of existing members and 
He new talents of incoming freshmen will definately 
rove that men's soccer at Catawba will be back in full 
->rce for the '94 season.

The 1993-94 women's soccer team was a dominant 
orce in the conference this year. Although the 
'omen did not get the bid for the nationals out of ten 
tarns, they were still pleased with all of their accom- 
lishments. The team is ranked 16th in the nation 
nd were the conference co-champions. Along with a 
scord of 14-3-1, the team had many individual ac- 
omplishments. Scherrie Dalton was not only named 
reshman of the Year but she was also the number 
ne goalkeeper in the nation for the division. Katie 
leVitto was awarded the Scholar Athlete award and 
oach Mary Ann Martinelli was named Coach of the 
'ear. Katie DeVitto, Jan Johnson, and Allison Anker- 
on all made first team All-Conference while Kim 
lebene, Scherrie Dalton, and Danielle Figueroa were

Men's and Women's Cross 
Country is back after being re- 
tired years ago. This year both 
teams have made cross country 
into a well-known sports team 
throughout SAC. Pam Steffe 
was named SAC Freshman of 
the Year and moved to first 
team all conference. Pam along 
with Tricia Sea ton, and Amy 
Hansen who was also named all 
conference, helped Catawba 
take first place in four cross 
country invitations. The men's 
team also did well placing sec- 
ond in the Pfeiffer Invitation 
and third in the Catawba Invi- 
tation. Seniors, Angie Grubbs, 
Carolyn Boice, and Doug Nor- 
man helped bring leadership to 
both teams.

At the beginning of the year, Sam Moil's last season looked grim. Rankec 
last m the SAC in the preseason poll, it looked like a tough year for Cat 
awba. However, it didn't take long for things to turn around. Once the sea- 
son started, Catawba proved everyone wrong. With leadership from then 
top returning players and from seniors Mark Flynn, Shannon Jordan, Jefi 
Lippard, and Jeff Vaughn, the Indians moved from last place to seconc 
place at publication time. What a way for Sam Moir to end his 34th and last 
season at Catawba!

For the past two years Catawba has been the SAC champions, and the In-

did play an exhibition match during the

This new sport has attracted many

sport for Catawba students to enjoy. It may be a 
new sport, but its participants spend many hours

In Memory Of 
Jerry lee Poole, Jr. 


The following is a song he often sang: 

"My Way" (adapted by his family) 

My friends, I've lived a life that's full, 
I've traveled lots of highways, 

Regrets I've had a few, 

But then again, too few to mention, 

I did what I had to do without exemption. 

I've loved, I've laughed and cried, 
I've had my fill of joy, my share of losing, 
To think I did all that, and may I say, 
"Not in a shy way." 

For what is a man, what has he got, 

If not himself, then he has not, 

To say and do the things he truly feels, 

I've faced it all, and stood tall. 
Yes, it was MY WAY. 

Jerry chose Catawba College for its philosophy, educational 
values and the goals he wanted to achieve. Jerry commuted to 
Catawba so he could work at Roses during school months and 
at Norandal in the summer months to help pay for his college 
tuition. An important contributing factor in Jerry's choosing 
Catawba College was so he could be around his friends. Friends 
were very important to him. His friends often called him "One 
of the good guys. " 

Jerry was with us for twenty -one wonderful years. We 
watched him grow into an outstanding, loving, and caring 
young man. We were so very proud of him. 

Jerry loved and enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. Jerry's 
memory will live with us forever. 

With love, 

Rose and Jerry Poole

The 1993-94 school year will be remembered by all Catawba stu- 
dents for something. Many noticeable and noteworthy events took 
place. The largest freshman class ever entered Catawba College. In 
October, the 19th President of the college, Mr. J. Fred Corriher, was 
officially installed. Two new sports, men's lacrosse and women's 
swimming were added as Catawba made the switch to NCAA Divi- 
sion II athletics. Students will remember the cold January weather 
which caused classes to be cancelled one day until lunch. Also, 
"The Talkshow" celebrated its one year anniversary. The women's 
soccer team won the conference championship, in only its fourth 
year of existence. These and many other memorable events oc- 
curred. Catawba, like the Sayakini. is BACK AND BETTER THAN 

"I knew 1 should have tried out 
for football, " thinks Matt Miller.

This year I had the distinct honor and privilege of serving as the editor of the 
Sayakini . As many of you know, no yearbook was published for the 1992-93 school 
year. After a year without an annual, I was determined to make this book the best it 
could be. What you see between the covers is the result of long hours of work by 
many people. I want to take this opportunity to thank those people who made con- 
tributions to the 1993-94 Sayakini . 

First and foremost, a big thank you goes out to the wonderful staff who worked 
long and hard to meet deadline after deadline: Renee, Traci, Julia, Debbie, Daphne, 
Jen, Jerry, Jennifer, Susi, Audrey, April and Torri. 

Thanks to Ms. Jennifer Hubbard for serving as our advisor. It meant a lot to 
know that you were behind me. 

Bill and Rosemary Hall deserve credit for all their hard work. Thanks for all the 
help, advice and the camera! 

Dr. Carlton — thanks for being so understanding when I would work on year- 
book stuff in your class. I appreciate it. 

1 want to thank the college faculty, staff, and coaches for their cooperation with 
pictures. Special thanks to Dennis Davidson for supplying some athletic photos and 
Lisa Misenheimer for sending memos when they needed to be. 

To Mrs. Jean Wurster, thanks for all your help while working on the dedication. 
It is our privilege to dedicate this book to the memory of your husband. 

This book would not be complete without the hard work of David Setzer. Some 
of the photos included were taken by David. "Thank you" cannot begin to express 
my gratitude. 

To Valerie Zoppi — thanks for selling some ads. 

Thanks to Jess, Jen, Karen, Jason, and Jenn (you know who you are!) for all the 
little things you did to help me out near deadline time! 

Also, thanks to Bill Pieczynski and Sharon LaFargue for taking some pictures for 
me when no one else could. I appreciate it! 

Last, but most certainly not least, a huge thank you to President Corriher. With- 
out him behind this project, there would be no yearbook. It was his interest and co- 
operation in reviving the yearbook that helped produce what you see before you. 
From the bottom of my heart I say "Thank You" for all your time, patience, interest 
and backing. It could not have been done without you. 

I apologize if I've left anyone out. It was not intentional, I promise! 
A final note to the staff — this book is something to be proud of. Take pride in all 
you did. 

Thanks again to everyone! 

Meredith Greer
